GreenMotion: "green" materials for automotive applications

image[3]The GreenMotion Project seeks to promote the use of "green" materials for automotive applications and to create a network of companies from Galicia and north of Portugal interested in the same objective.  The project is based on a consortium formed by CTAG (the Galician Automotive Technological Centre), CIS-Madeira (Galician Information and Service Centre for the wood sector) and PIEP (Pole for Innovation in Polymer Engineering, Portugal), with UE co-funding ( ERDF funds, POCTEP Programme).

The main objective is the creation of a virtual platform to provide enterprises from the Galician-North of Portugal Eurorregion all the information about ecological materials that may be used in automobile in a close and easy way, promoting their integration in vehicles.

The companies can register in the platform by fulfilling a simple on line form, to get access to the website resources:

– a materials data base, with the characteristics of alternative "green" materials;
– a prototype dashboard, to demonstrate "green" alternatives do to convencional petrochemical plastics;
– a data base of projects and partners.

Besides the the access to information about project ideas, the registered companies will be able to post their own project ideas and search for partners.
